11:02pm
police said these suspects had to be familiar with this store. from the outside it looks like all they carry is furniture. but these rob berz burst through these door, went right to the jewelry counter and started spraying employees with pepper spray. picking up the pieces, the owner of the home consignment center in danville is cleaning up after a violent home robbery. >> there was the noise of loud booming over all the cases. i didn't know if it was gunfire or glass breaking. >> they quickly figured out the store was being robbed. three people burst into a store while people shopped, sprayed the employees with pepper spray, grabbed some merchandise and wen outside to a waiting van. it all happened in about a
11:03pm
minimum, a horrifying minute that the employees won't ever forget. >> it's horrifying for them because they didn't know what it was. one employee thought she had been hit with acid. >> one employee, about 80, tried to fight the robbers off. danville police chief wants to take a closer look at the video before sharing it with us. >> three people entered as a group, they entered very quickly. they pepper sprayed toward the occupants and created what i believe to be a diversion, then they quickly smash open the jewelry cases. >> there were about 20 people in the store. customers came to the aid of tearful, terrified employees. >> to use pepper spray like that on the public during the commission of a crime is definitely an evil thing to do. >> the chief says it's also a felony. danville police say they plan to blow up images from that video to try and get a better look at the suspects. the chief says they were wearing gloves, long sleeves, hoodis and
11:04pm
masks so they were very well hidden. employees who went to the hospital are home. reporting live in danville, nbc bay area news. >> i've been in that place lots of times, jean. that's really stunning it happened there. an attack happened at the park regency apartments on oak road. a man pr teetending to sell car cleeping service gained his way into a woman's home and then attacked her. he was described as six feet tall with a full beard. recently a bay point man was arrested and attempted to attack three other women in that same complex. police say those attacks are not at all connected to this latest assault. the heat is on the rise, but it's not just a warning about rising temperatures. a heat wave could lead to a
11:05pm
crime wave. we'll have details on that warning in just a moment, but we begin in the weather center with rob and the hot weather coming our way. rob? >> lisa, we're really in a hot pattern and we have a tough time oo cooling off even at 11:00. 70 degrees off the bay. oakland, 68. look at this number, san francisco 70 degrees. just a hint of a sea breeze, wind at 6 miles per hour. tomorrow we have a spare the air day. that will be where unhealthy for sensitive groups air quality will be found in the san fernando valley. then tomorrow morning and as early as lunchtime asaturday, we'll already be seeing some 90s. we'll be even hotter as we head toward sunday and monday. jessica? does this question add up to the perfect climate for crime?
11:06pm
you betcha. with the number of burglaries rising, when the mercury spikes. kimberly terry is live in oakland and cops say no matter how hot it is, you have to keep those windows closed. >> reporter: that's absolutely right, jessica. while police will not confirm that crime goes up, they say the number of calls they get increases, especially the number of alcohol-related calls when the temperature rises. they also say criminals are looking for more opportunities and that happens when warm weather occurs because, of course, as you mentioned, open windows and unlocked doors. >> it's beautiful. kind of strange for this time of the year, but it's so nice and hot and i have to get out and enjoy it. >> reporter: after such a cool summer, it wasn't hard to find people out enjoying a rare day of sunshine. >> it's kind of late, though. real late. >> it's the best weather we ever had in the whole year. >> reporter: with the warm
11:07pm
weather comes opportunity for criminals to take advantage. and with the next couple of days expected to be even hotter, police want to remind residents to be on guard. >> there are people that live -- they're sheltered, so to speak, and they think it can never happen to them, they can leave their windows down, doors open or unlocked or leave the windows open in their car when they go in a shopping mall, but there are people who will steal from you without thinking twice. >> reporter: he says while most of us like to relax on a warm, sunny day, criminals don't take time off. >> be cognizant of your surroundings, be aware, turn your head around. people who perform crimes don't lining to be seen. >> while they were out soaking up the sun, most admit there are risks with the warm-up. >> you want to enjoy the weather, but at the same time you have to be mindful of the necessary precautions.
11:08pm
>> we have an alarm in the house and we turn it on every time we leave. >> i try to stay cool but i definitely stay safe. >> reporter: police say another target: parking lots. people in warm weather leave their windows down halfway, partially down, and thieves are looking at that as a target looking for any valuable they may be able to take. so just take a few extra minutes to make sure you secure your home and your car before you leave. live in san leandro, kimberly kerry. how do you want to die? a federal jury is giving that choice to an inmate scheduled to be put to death next wednesday. that judge lifted a moratorium on california executions today, clearing the way for the first execution in almost five years. >> reporter: federal judge jeremy fogel has given convicted
11:09pm
murderer albert greenwood a choice of how he wants to die. they said, though, they should give brown another choice: life. >> we're asking why now? why the rush to execute now? the attorney general and rushing this process and creating legal chaos. there is an enormous amount of questions and in securities that vn been answered. >> brown was sentenced in 1992 for raping susan jordan in california. he will be the first inmate executed in almost five years. judge fogel had halted all executions in 2006 to take a closer look at the three-drug lethal injection process and see if inmates were suffering extreme pain during executions. >> here the stakes are too high and there are too many uncertainties for this to continue. the court needs to stop the proceedings so we can have a careful review of all the problems and public concerns over lethal injection.
11:10pm
>> brown will also be the first inmate to be executed in california's new lethal injection chamber which has been changed to meet new requirements. those are better equipment, lighting and space. those in favor of the death penalty are happy with the judge's decision to move forward with the execution. >> there has to be some measure of accountability, and quite frankly, if you take a life, you deserve to lose your life. >> from now until next wednesday, expect a flurry of appeals and requests. the judge will ask the marin county court to halt the execution. up next, friday night lights for lindsay lohan. why she may be out of jail before last call. too good to be true. the misprint that could mean free airline tickets for you. what were they thinking? navy pilots kault caught on tapg dangerous helicopter stunts on
11:11pm
lake tahoe. >> we're well on the way to a hot weekend on the bay. san francisco still sitting at 71 degrees at 11:00. , llhofu at we full, hot weathe forecast coming up. r
11:12pm
top guns or just maybe pilots behaving badly? you decide. you're about to see cell phone video that appears to show pie lots dunking their $33 million
11:13pm
choppers into lake tahoe. >> oh, my gosh! >> the navy confirms this cell phone video shot september 13 at lake tahoe is authentic. the helicopters are $33 million romeos. the choppers are from maritime strike 41 squadron. >> i didn't know that was possible. >> either did i. wow. >> so what were the pilots doing? the pentagon has told nbc news it was not a training mission, but the pilots were allegedly trying to take pictures of each other's helicopter in a majestic setting. the chopper desended, one emerging before hitting
11:14pm
disaster. we showed you two of the retired navy pilots, one a tactical controller. >> i'm not exactly sure what they're doing, but yeah, i think there is a little basis for an investigation there. >> my gut reaction? why someone would want to sacrifice their career to do something off a flight plan would be -- i mean, that's a career-killing event right there. >> no one at the base would go on camera but a spokesman said the helicopter sustained class c damage, meaning damage more than 50,000 but less than $500,000. >> now, that was artie oheda reporting for us, and they say it was not a normal exercise. the pilots have been grounded and depending on the outcome, they could lose their license. the department of justice today ended the private packets between six local pet companies which made secret agreements not to poach one of their employees.
11:15pm
the pixar animation studios have all sided with a justice department. they agreed in a series of arrangements which began in twaf 2005. in a statement they said it applied only to cold calls and the referrals were still from job fairs. a misprint may result in you getting two free plane tickets to anywhere in the u.s. this was a form in the mail that came decorated as a birthday card. >> it says, we've been going crazy trying to contact you. i'm verified to receive two plane tickets anywhere in the united states. i got excited.
11:16pm
so did she. another one says she, too, received a sample in her card. >> it looked like it was from u.s. airlines, a legitimate airlines. the only disclaimer? call for details, restrictions app apply. two plane tickets and car rental for a week? so what's the catch? >> the promotional airfares are incentives for you to attend a 90-minute presentation on home ownership -- >> in other words, a timeshare. the california department of real estate which regulates time shares says state law requires mailers clearly spell out what's required to collect those plane tickets, including costs or any sales pitch you have to sit through. >> it's definitely a violation of those statutory requirements, and i would say, yes, it is misleading. >> i went to the global exchange vacation club in woodland hills
11:17pm
to hear the sales pitch. the place is packed with other birthday card recipients and salespeople pushing the latest version of vacation ownership. rather than selling time, they are selling points for $30,000. >> what is this, like 35 grand over a lifetime? >> after two hours of salespeople and video presentations, we don't exactly get our plane tickets. >> all you have to do is read and follow the conditions. >> 15 conditions and restrictions. we're handed certificates that must be mailed in to obtain more certificates before we can even request a flight reservation. gary allman of the better business bureau says he's received dozens of complaints. >> they all require some kind of deposit. >> $75 in a money order or cashier's check that must be sent certified mail, none of which is explained on the birthday card. >> that's why we're investigating this particular timeshare operator. >> i went to the offices of
11:18pm
ultimate vacations in costa mesa, since, after all, they've been trying like crazy to reach me. so why send out the misleading cards? >> it was an error, a misprint. >> tim, the owner, showed me the correct mailers with the required disclosures. this promised to make it to our viewers, like nicole. >> like i said, if anybody got one of the mailers without the proper disclosures, they're welcome to call and we're glad to mail out their certificates. >> well, that's a nice gesture on his part but if this was, in fact, not an error and if this is a practice that they do on a regular basis, we'll take the necessary sanctions against our license. >> anna garcia, nbc bay area news. >> bottom line, if you received one of the birthday cards without the required details, they said they will make good on their offer and give you two
11:19pm
plane tickets to anywhere in the united states. remember, there are 15 conditions to go with those plane tickets, so it's not free. it's not easy to book, either, and it does require a seven-day stay and the tickets are only for adults. they didn't play ball for at&t, they played "verdi," but it was the great weather that stole the show. instead of balls and strikes, the crowd watched the opera ida on the diamond vision scoreboard. a crowd of about 30,000 was expected but perhaps even more were lured by this warm weather. >> what a great idea to sit there in the ballpark and listen to some opera. that sounds very chic. >> beautiful weather. right now it's still kind of warm outside, not just around san francisco where it's still 68 degrees. there you see the wind barely out of the west with 3.
11:20pm
typically we'd be in the low 50s with fog rolling again. let's take you over to oakland and you'll see almost 70 degrees. there's a beautiful view looking west to san francisco there. no wind in oakland now. look at san jose. the wind is light, calm right now, and we will continue to see our temperatures slowly dropping into the 50s and 60s overnight. not much of a cool nature at all around the bay area. so for tomorrow morning, it's going to be a warm start. most of us waiting up in the 60s. we'll get hot temperatures inland spots well into the 90s and unfortunately at lunchtime. we'll probably see a few more as we get to saturday and sunday. continuing the trend that started today, we're going to see more areas popping up into the 90s tomorrow, especially san jose heading into the tri area, and then as we head to sunday and monday, i think monday will
11:21pm
be the hottest day we see in this heat spell, getting close to 100 degrees around livermore or concord, record-breaking territory come monday afternoon. highs climbing up into the upper 90s around san jose. you'll find mostly 60s. if you're living in the foothills area of east bay and south bay, you may as well wake up to temperatures in the 70s by morning. 80s and 90s across the board. 85 san francisco, low 90s for saturday. then you find some upbeat monitor. your hottest days of the week will be coming as you unravel. we'll probably just see slow cooling heading to wednesday next week. >> ilts got to be hot on those fields for the kids. >> they hydrated.
